I've had my Solara a little over a year and I just love it. It's so much quieter than my previous convertible. It handles great and the engine has just enough pep to keep my happy but not enough to get me into trouble. I highly recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a good balance between fun and functional.
Ease of top down, of course. Good sized trunk space and back seat compared to other convertibles. Love the seat warmers, too.
Be very careful backing up because of the blind spot. Would not deter me from purchasing the car again.
